Traces Juried Photography Exhibition


The Fort Gallery’s 2019 juried photography exhibition contemplates our fascination with unex-pected and unintentional abstracts. Found or incidental drawings that occur because someone has made a mark on the sidewalk, a brush or roller cleaned on newspaper, a crab or snail leav-ing prints in the sand, and foot prints, human or animal, in mud or snow. These abstracts occur everywhere: on walls, sidewalks, roads, where someone has spilled or spattered paint or marked the surface to signify something; or in nature, where the passage of some creature has left a patterned trace.

Jurors reviewed 37 submitted pieces exploring this theme; 19 artworks were selected. The in-cluded artists are: Lori Bagneres, Linda Brown, Karen Christensen, Laura Clark, Deb DeJong, Kristin Krimmel, Myrna Pfeifer, Dawn Robirtis, Raeanne Schachter, Bob St. Cyr and Lyn Verra-Lay.

Traces runs May 29-June 30. Please join us for the opening reception, Friday, May 31st, 7-9pm. Many of the artists will be in attendance and will be giving short talks on their work. The gallery will also be hosting an event with musician Kat Wahama in conjunction with the exhibit, June 21st, 7-9pm.

The Fort Gallery wishes to thank the Township of Langley for sponsorship of Traces.

Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday, noon-5pm
